The Kentucky Irish American takes pleasure in announcing to its many friends and readers that it is now in possession of its own office, Hereafter the paper will be issued from 326 West Green street, be tween Third and Fourth. No paper has been started of late years with such flattering prospects of success as the Kentucky Trish American, and the growth of its circulation has been phenomenal. Because of disappointment in procuring our new type and ma terial there was no issue last week. Amends will be made for the omis- however. The editor and manager has now completed all necessary arrangements for the publication of a first-class journal, and with each issue new features will be introduced. Although our subscription list has been largely augmented with each issue, notwithstanding the disad vantages we were under, it is ex pected there will be a still greater increase every week hereafter. The price will remain at only $1 per year, aud we ask our friends to send in their names and lists at once. We want to have 5,000 sub scribers in this city. Arrangements are being completed for its intro duction throughout Kentucky and the adjoining States, and also for an excellent news service. While our advertising patronage has been very fair, no special effort to and otliers v have not as yet been called upon, but henceforth we expect to make them weekly visits, and can now assure them an atlinle return for , any space they may occupy.

Al Cook and Billy West promise to pull off some interesting events before the new Louisville Athletic Club this fall.

Ren Mulford thinks that he has dis covered a conspiracy that keeps Joe Cor bett. from pitching with the Baltimore team this season. Mulford declares that Jim Corbett and his manager have suc ceeded in booking a lot of bets that Cin cinnati beats out Baltimore in the pen nant race, and that they arc keeping Joe from he Orioles to protect their money. The release of Killen obliterates one of the old landmarks on the Pittsburg team. He has been a hard worker in his time, and has still a good left arm, and should have no trouble catching on with one of the major League teams.

Early yesterday morning Corporal Whitman was makine his rounds in he neighborhood of Twenty-first and Main streets, and he noticed two men stealing down the street. Robberies have been thick in this part of the city lately, . and he determined to follow them. The men stopped at Twenty-first and Rowan streets, and then crossed the street and stealthily began preparations to enter the house. Whitman blew his whistle for Patrol man Heffernan, whom he knew to be in the neighborhood, and ran out of the shadow and told the men they were un der arrest. The largest of the burglars kept his , hand iu his breast, and Whitman sup posed him to be holding a burglar's tool. " The officer asked them who they were, and one said they were newspaper car riers, and that their names were Adams and McGuire. The officer asked to see their bundle of papers, and they could not produce any. In the meantime Heffernan came up, and Whitman turned to tell him to call the patrol wagon, when the burglar who had kept his hand in his breast whipped out a revolver and fired at Whitman at a distance of six feet. Heffernan had never taken his eyes from him, and sprang in- stautly upon him, striking him to the ground with his club in time to save 1 Whitman's life, the ball passing above the latter'a head. TJuring-the second that folloV 11. 1 1 1 t j .a uiucr uurgiur ami Wlllimatl DOtll UKW revolvers and paired off, each firing three times. One of Whitman's shots took effect in the arm of his adversary, for he dropped his weapon to his side and ran down the street. In the meantime the desperate bnrglar on-Htfiround, foiled in his attempt to kill Whitman, held ilis-Si.it-vi,ur..reVQiVpr in his right hand. Heffernan advanced upon him, telling him he was under ar rest and to submit to the officers of the law. The big fellow's only answer was to raise himself ivpou his left arm and quick as a flash presented his pistol. An instant later he fired from his position, the ball entering Heffernan's right side, passing through the liver and penetrating the right lung. The Seventeenth-street patron wagon soon arrived, and Heffernan was taken to his home, at 2301 Bank street. There he had hemorrhage after hemorrhage, and the blood came so fast that it was thought advisable to take him to St. Joseph's Infirmary. Heffernan is forty-four years old, and has a wife and four children. He has been a member of the force for four years, before which he was a member of the fire department. He is a brother of Police Lieutenant Edward Heffernan. Only a few days ago he had a narrow escape from a negro gambler, who fired three shots at him. As soon as the shooting was reported at the headquarters, men were instantly sent out to search for the fugitives. Fr6tn the description given by Whit man, the detectives are convinced that one of the men was Howard Clark, who has been arrested before and is regarded as a very bad character, and the Chief of Police of New Albany was immediately asked to look for him, and arrest him if he could find him there.
